  • Description


    - Due to the accommodation available, we can only accept single men/boys or a couple at this time. We are looking for an immediate availability starting as soon as possible. We need help with construction projects, attending to guests, and technology. Pura Vida! - Jenny & Heyner

    We are a very close family who live on this farm in 3 houses. We have 5 hectares of paradise where we grow bananas, avocados, guavas among many other crops. We have 5 dogs and 2 cats that always keep us company. We do not have any employees. We do everything as a family. The farm is quite large and needs volunteers. We are also repairing another guest cabin and need help to do it. You can learn how to grow, sow and build.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Everyone who comes learns construction, Spanish and agriculture without chemicals. Also, you will learn the culture of Costa Rica, taste the food that Costa Ricans eat. Volunteers could also learn about the times of climate change in our region. In addition, there are many tropical fruits that can be made into drinks such as sugarcane juice, cashew juice, starfruit, and if you come during avocado harvest season you can enjoy many. All of them in the warmth of a peasant family that loves cultural exchange with visitors.

    Todo el que viene aprende de construcción, español y de agricultura sin químicos. También, va a aprender la cultura de Costa Rica, probar la comida que ticos comen. Los voluntarios también podrían aprender sobre las épocas que imperan in los cambios climáticos en nuestra región. Además, hay muchas frutas tropicales que se pueden hacer en bebidas así como el jugo de caña de azúcar, jugo de cas, carambolas, y, si vienen durante la temporada de cosecha de aguacates pueden disfrutar muchos. Todo ellos en el calor de una familia campesina que ama el intercambio cultural con los visitantes.
